Illegitimis Non Carborundum

Wednesday, June 9, 2010


I swear I make myself crazy! I can work myself up and into a tizzy over nothing! I really need to get control over this. And I'm starting to notice patterns. Yes, it's usually once a month, and it usually happens when I'm over tired because of my crazy schedule. I'm realizing that I worked Friday night and only had Saturday night off. I'm feeling overtired, stressed out and in serious need of some down time. I had a few nights where I didn't get enough rest because of school schedules and meetings. The more I talk myself through this and tell myself why I'm feeling this way, the better I'm starting to feel. Well, that and the consumption of M&Ms seems to be helping.

I also find that sitting down and making my lists really helps. So I'm making my lists for the weekend. I would absolutely kill to have time in my schedule to meditate or take yoga. I need to add that to my list for the summer. I wonder if I could get a yoga video and watch it while in work. Not the ideal place for yoga though.

I also think that by mid week, I'm so tired of being by myself for 8 hours at work that I start to feel buggy. But then again, if I had to deal with people for 8 hours, I might be worse. Maybe it's more about being stuck inside. I need some fresh air and sunshine. Of course I have off tomorrow night and they are calling for rain. I'm not even going to get my hopes up for Thursday!

I'm just going to practice my deep breathing. And eat more M&Ms.

On a happier note, I found some new books at work. I scored The Secret Supper by Javier Sierra, The Guest List by Fern Michaels, Right Next Door by Debbie Macomber and 8 Sandpiper Way by Debbie Macomber. I'm a little behind on her address series. I need to get moving on that this summer too.

I took the kids to the library after school also. I was looking for a book that the site said was at that branch but I could not find it anywhere. Maybe they already pulled it and are sending it to me since I reserved it! Yeah, that's it.

While I was there, I just had to pick up a few new ones. I got The Killing Edge by Heather Graham, The Wild Zone by Joy Fielding and Dead Famous by Carol O'Connell. I need to check O"Connell's website though. I have that need to read in order disease and I do not want to start Dead Famous if it's not the first of her Mallory books. Gotta have order somewhere in my life!

You would think with so much to read, I would just curl up, get comfy, crack open a book and get lost!

Oh man that sounds like heaven!

  1. Yes, I, too, have found that M&Ms cures almost everything!
    Looks like you found some great titles. I read a few of the "address" titles but never finished the series.


So, whatcha thinkin?
